VIDEO: UKIP donates 250 sandbags to flood-hit Christchurch residents after council row

Bournemouth Echo: DONATION: Residents from flats in Conifer Close have received sandbags to help protect their homes. DONATION: Residents from flats in Conifer Close have received sandbags to help protect their homes.

FLOOD-hit Christchurch residents who have been embroiled in a row with the council have taken delivery of 250 donated sandbags.

Two lorries of sandbags were delivered to residents in Conifer Close to help them protect themselves from any future flooding.

The sandbags were funded by UKIP and delivery was arranged by prospective Parliamentary candidate Robin Grey, following a week in which Christchurch council’s stance on sandbags made national news.

Green Watch members from Christchurch fire station then visited and built the sandbags into walls.

The 250 sandbags donated by UKIP are in addition to 300 bags purchased by residents themselves.

Last week, under-fire Christchurch councillors said they would refund residents for the sandbags they had bought and would provide them with further sandbags.

But residents, many of whom are elderly, were unable to collect these from the council depot at Furzehill.

Resident Paul Richards said: “We’re feeling better now the sandbags are in place but nonetheless aggrieved at the trouble we’ve had.

“The people who have helped us are not the people you would expect to help. We’re very grateful to them.

“We do feel we‘ve got a first line of emergency defence now, it’s only a first line and could well be breached, but it’s better than nothing.”

He said residents would be making a donation to Green Watch’s charity of choice to thank them for their help.

Like UKIP or not, at least they did something more than the moronic Christchurch leader did, all he did was moan because he did get his own way in the local paper,so he started throwing his town out of the pram.
I think this is the final warning.

In a more serious vein thanks to Green Watch for being pratical and getting down and helping these residents. By making a donation to the charity it should show the council it is not all about money it is about community. The council working with the community is how you get the community working!

Facts - they do get in the way sometimes. This old fool was a Tory when he first uttered those offensive sentiments and indeed much worse. But refreshingly UKIP slung him out immediately when he repeated them - can you imagine the Lib/Lab/Cons being anywhere near so decisive?

UKIP are already frightening the old guard in Christchurch and that must be a good thing for everyone there.

Whether you class it as vote catching or just plain caring, UKIP has done something positive, but no doubt the great leader of CBC will come with something to slag them off. Get used to it sir, because in 2015 we could see
the possibility of someone such as either Rollo Reid, or David Williams taking over from you. Please don't tell us you have done a fantastic job in Christchurch, because your track record alleges that you have destroyed our town, and we will not forget that.

I am also a realist so let us try a simple analogy - A large double-deck bus pulls up at a random bus stop but it is completely full up, not even any standing room left. It would certainly be disadvantageous and unsafe to allow anymore people to enter the vehicle. So the driver politely tells the long queue there is no more room on board and closes the doors.

I do like your bus analogy, even if I don't agree with it.

The poster did say: "BUT I also want to see 95% of those already here removed pronto. It's time to clean up Bournemouth and return it to the way it used to be." which certainty does not fit your analogy. The analogy would work if it was adapted so that the bus is travelling in 1930s America. As I believe the original poster is suggesting we remove existing immigrants.

Neither the country nor the job market is a fixed sized entity like a bus.

There was very interesting study recently that proved that British public opinion on a number of key policy categories was wrong. Not just a little wrong. Totally wrong. It is very worth looking up. Because being very wrong about something puts you at a personal disadvantage.

Thanks for your kind comment. I do not support any form of repatriation for those already here and I also understand UKIP shares that position, it does not seek to repatriate 95% (or in fact any) of the perfectly legal immigrants already in the UK - not least because if we traced our family trees far enough back most of us would be probably be leaving!

In fact my analogy did not mention the Driver chucking anyone who had paid their fare off that bus - even though it is full up.

Does that mean my neice cannot take up the job in Germany in April, or my neighbours cannot move to Spain next year ?

Or will there be a 'one in one out# policy like there used to be in night clubs ?

Should we directly correlate the birth numbers with the death numbers ... on a daily, weekly or monthly basis ?

What will happen if Scotland becomes independant or more importantly the UK does become independant from Europe ? All the EU citizens will have to leave as they will not have a right of abode here.

The problem is that this is a fairly complex matter and people do have concerns, but what they need is reasoned debate not silly Janet and John style analogies put forward by a ragbag of malcontents who have not a clue about what needs to be done or whatt might be a realistic solution..

Most would be better off trying to solve puzzles on Countdown than offering up flawed and simplistic guff as the bus story is.

Disjointed negative criticism, not a hint of anything constructive and worded to be immaturely offensive - so as predicted normal service has been resumed. Let's try to answer these rather odd questions:

If Germany were to decide it's own 'bus' is full then there would not be room for immigrants to go there and take jobs.
A 'one off, one on' principle works for the mythical 'bus', so it would indeed be an immigration policy worthy of consideration for a full up Country.
Neither I or to my knowledge UKIP are suggesting anyone already here legally would have to leave the UK under new tighter immigration controls - because of course they are already on the 'bus'.

(Best to leave Scottish independence alone for now - they seem to be screwing it up very well without any of our help.)

oh dear

you haven't quite grasped this have you ?

the articlle was about UKIP, might comments were about UKIP

as to your supposed 'amswers' they are no more valid than UKIP's confused nonsense

what I have shown is that this idiotic buffoonery of UKIP is neither practical or workable in any sense - you adding your tuppen'th worth merely confirms that

Scottish independance is only wanted to be left alone as it highlights the flaws in the nonsense spouted by UKIP - to close for comfort I suspect

UKIP offers nothing other than a hole for those who still haven't come to terms with the 20th century, never mind the 21st century, to stick their heads donwn

even their leader called their 2010 manifesto ... drivel

as to " immaturely offensive" i should lighten up a bit if I were you - UKIP is a joke group and as such are worthy of ridicule, be it suposedly mature or immature

Why not just say 'I don't agree with UKIP and don't like their policies' then expand on that to explain why - instead of all this ill informed, oddly spelt, silly offensive nonsense. It is very difficult for people to even begin to respect the opinions of those who cannot convey them in a civil, intelligent and constructively critical style - after all everyone deserves a say.

We'd have a lot less trouble from flooding if
a) European guidance on not building, or even putting caravan parks in, flood plains hadn't been ignored on the basis that we brits weren't going to be told what to do by europe
b) The rivers and canals were still being dredged and the locks that control flooding were still being manned as in europe instead of the whole system being run into the ground by an unelected government quango.
Somerset votes LIberal Democrat so they've been punished for that by subtly letting their flood management go to pot over the years so that when the rains came, this is the result.
We need to be part of europe to guard against this kind of petty regionalism that has cost somerset so dear.

I am also a realist so let us try a simple analogy - A large double-deck bus pulls up at a random bus stop but it is completely full up, not even any standing room left. It would certainly be disadvantageous and unsafe to allow anymore people to enter the vehicle. So the driver politely tells the long queue there is no more room on board and closes the doors. That sensible action does NOT mean that he is racist, bigoted or xenophobic, it just means his bus is full up!

That bus may be the UK and it's driver UKIP.....
I suggest,muscleman, you would push to be the first to alight, if your 'magical mystery bus' was alight and ever truly full!
Mind you, I suspect 'Dave the Driver' would have his own 'opt-out doors'.!!

I would have thought that anyone would have grasped by now that I don't agree with UKIP, but thanks for your help.

Likewise I have expanded, simply by taking their loony policies to their logical conclusion,

As to respect for opinions then it is up to others to judge them on their validity.

I don't recall ever stating that folk are not entitled to their opinions either or from expressing them so stop making up stuff - unless of course the Daily Mail is dependant upon you for it's 'facts'.

Some will fall for it. Most will take the bags and vote as they think fit.

Now, if UKIP candidates filled the bags with sand and placed them to hold back a flood - that WOULD be different.
